Swinging Footbridge

It replaces the original swinging bridge that was built in 1902. Very swing-y, lots of fun to walk across. And an interesting small town as well. At the north end of the bridge is a former courthouse from the time when Saskatchewan was in the Northwest Territories and not yet part of Canada.

The bridge is 100 meters long and is a bit shaky in the middle. At least the elevation is low.

[Jon Morgan, 06/22/2018]

Wolseley was built around a lake, so a swinging footbridge across the water was needed. The current bridge, built in 2004, is the third in 98 years to occupy the same spot. Both previous bridges collapsed during storms.
